The Saturday Night Bush Dance




As a teenager I regretted the years of isolation and neglected education but now I treasure those memories and think just how fortunate I was to have lived on the Kalgoorlie – Lakewood Woodline. Memories like the monthly Saturday Dance are as vivid today as they were more than three score and ten years ago!

“Ronald! It's time for your bath son!”
“But its only four o’clock mum, and I’m busy,” I answered.
“Your sister has finished so hurry up and get in the bath while the water is still warm; we can’t keep Old Plonky waiting again like last month.”
